A Culture In Quarantine Commission from the BBC
Written and Directed by Vici Wreford-Sinnott
Inspired by the book ‘Crippled’ by Frances Ryan
Starring Philippa Cole
It’s Friday 13 March 2020 and Jessica is coming home after her hen night – a last night of freedom but not in ways she, or any of us, could have imagined.
The life she’s worked so hard to create is turned upside down. People rally around her, but she is forced to confront what kind of lives disabled people can expect to live in the 21st Century.
Her fight for survival is on.
